Goal 1: No poverty 
Goal 2: Zero hunger 
Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth 

95% of our production is made in Europe. We always trace the full supplier chain ensuring that not only all of our garment manufacturers but also fabric mills, dying houses, printing houses keep fair wages, good working conditions and take full social responsibility. Our manufacturers are GOTS certified. Fabric houses and dying mills are all GOTS certified, Global recycling standard certified and OEKO tex certified. These certifications assure high standards also when it comes to fair wages, working hours, over time regulations, social responsibility and working conditions (no exposure to chemicals etc). Portugal also have strong unions in place in all of our factories. So with 95% of our textile production in Portugal poverty or hunger is never an issue. This season we will also be exhibiting a leather collection with Swedish-Bangladeshi brand Sandlund/Hossain. Since we share the same values and philosophies for the fashion industri we have developed a first collection together that we hope will be the start of several collections. Please read more about how our leather products directly correlates to the “donate what you dont use” -in this case the meat and has a a no poverty and zero hunger impact in Bangladesh through “the cow funder initiative” https://sandlundhossain.com/sv/the-cow-funder-initiative/

Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
All of our our dying mills, finishing houses and weaving/knitting mills have high tech water recycling and cleaning systems. This is also something that is evaluated to receive a GOTs certifications wich all of our mills have and most of them also the global recycling standard certificate. The estimate to use approximately 10% of water compared to a “regular textile industry”. Both GOTS and Oeko Tex certification regulate sanitation of water and the handling of chemicals.
When we produce new fabrics we use a large amount of Eco vero and Tencel fibers from Lenzing. https://www.ecovero.com/LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fibers are derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certified and controlled sources. 

LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers have been certified with the EU Ecolabel as meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material extraction to production, distribution and disposal. 

LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers can be robustly identified in the final product, assuring you that your purchase contains genuine ECOVERO™ Viscose fibers.

Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy 
Green energy is used at the Residus office and only Led light bulbs. 

Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
A foundation of our company is that We always start our design process out by sourcing left over fabrics. The industri is full of fabrics that are laying around and not being used becouse we always want to start from scratch when starting up a collection. Piles of fabrics from sales collection canceled collections and access from high minimum quantities build up every ear and the piles keep building. We try to find and use these fabrics as a starting point in our collections! 

By doing this we cut out the most straining process of the fashion industry – the production of fibers, yarns, fabrics, dying and finishing. By using what is already been made but never got used. This is the very foundation of our brand- Residus from the word residue= leftover.
In addition to this we always request sustainable sourcing when it comes to new production and request certificates for all parts of the process from fiber to knitting, this is a way to constantly push the industry towards new innovation and improvement.

This season we will also be exhibiting a leather collection 
with Swedish-Bangladeshi brand Sandlund/Hossain.
